Mur des Canuts transforms an ordinary street corner into an art gallery. Murals dot, and sometimes cover, the walls with depictions of the everyday people frozen in a moment. You may find a baker bringing her bread out to cool, a businesswoman rushing to work, or a child playing. All of the images reflect the dynamic energy and humor of the city in which they’re painted.

This place is up a hill but worth visiting as there are really nice murals here. A great photo stop. Recommended.

Something you must see in Lyon, a reel piece of artwork. The 3D details are amazing, really realistic.

This is a wonderful and detailed mural painting in Lyon. Starting with an idea to use the mural paintings to decorate a huge blind facade and its advertising hoarding in 1986, and after a couple of times to record the new changes, Mur des Canuts turned out a famous picture spot in Lyon time by time. I highly recommend this as a place to visit, it’s definitely worth the time to go there.
Amazing art. Can seat on one of the benches on site and watch this piece of art. Easy to reach by Metro.
